We praise you, Lord, today for the gift of life. Teach us to live according to your will. Prepare us for the end of our days and weeks by opening our eyes to the reality of death and the calming of our hearts of their fears and anxieties. Help us to be compassionate to those we know who are sick and dying. Show us how to give them loving care. Protect the dying and preserve the dignity and rights of those who will soon die. Welcome these children into your life, with you. Bestow on all of us the grace to give comfort and hope unto eternal life. We ask this through Christ our Lord. AMEN
Maggie was diagnosed with brain cancer and strongly opposes assisted suicide. Hear this story of a strong woman with much left to give to her family and society. She has a powerful story of hope and courage - and that no doctor can put a timetable on anyone's life.
